Bond Act, as amended, invites subscriptions, at par and accrued interest, from the people
of the United States for bonds of the United States designated 4 percent Treasury
Bonds of 1969. The amount of the offering under this circular is $500,000,000, or there­
abouts. In addition to the amount offered for public subscription, the Secretary of the
Treasury reserves the right to allot up to $100,000,000 of these bonds to Government
Investment Accounts. The books will be open only on September 16, 1957, for the receipt
of subscriptions for this issue.
II. DESCRIPTION OF BONDS
1. The bonds will be dated October 1, 1957, and will bear interest from that date
at the rate of 4 percent per annum, payable semiannually on April 1 and October 1 in each
year until the principal amount becomes payable. They will mature October 1, 1969, and
will not be subject to call for redemption prior to maturity.
2. The income derived from the bonds is subject to all taxes imposed under the
Internal Revenue Code of 1954. The bonds are subject to estate, inheritance, gift or other
excise taxes, whether Federal or State, but are exempt from all taxation now or hereafter
imposed on the principal or interest thereof by any State, or any of the possessions of
the United States, or by any local taxing authority.
3. The bonds will be acceptable to secure deposits of public moneys.
4. Bearer bonds with interest coupons attached, and bonds registered as to prin­
cipal and interest, will be issued in denominations of $500, $1,000, $5,000, $10,000, $100,000

inations and of coupon and registered bonds, and for the transfer of registered bonds,
under rules and regulations prescribed by the Secretary of the Treasury.
5. Any bonds issued hereunder which upon the death of the owner constitute part of
his estate, will be redeemed at the option of the duly constituted representatives of the
deceased owner’s estate, at par and accrued interest to date of payment, provided:
(A) That the bonds were actually owned by the decedent at the time of his death;
and
(B) That the Secretary of the Treasury be authorized to apply the entire proceeds
of redemption to the payment of Federal estate taxes. Registered bonds submitted for
redemption hereunder must be duly assigned to “ The Secretary of the Treasury for
redemption, the proceeds to be paid to the District Director of Internal Revenue at
__________________ for credit on Federal estate taxes due from estate of_____________
_____________ ” Owing to the periodic closing of the transfer books and the impossibility
of stopping payment of interest to the registered owner during the closed period, regis­
tered bonds received after the closing of the books for payment during such closed period
will be paid only at par with a deduction of interest from the date of payment to the next
interest payment date; 2

properly completed,
signed and sworn to, and by proof of the representatives’ authority in the form of a
court certificate or a certified copy of the representatives’ letters of appointment issued

by the court. The certificate, or the certification to the letters, must be under the seal of
the court, and except in the case of a corporate representative, must contain a statement
that the appointment is in full force and be dated within six months prior to the sub­
mission of the bonds, unless the certificate or letters show that the appointment was
made within one year immediately prior to such submission. Upon payment of the bonds
appropriate memorandum receipt will be forwarded to the representatives, which will
be followed in due course by formal receipt from the District Director of Internal Revenue.
